Dirk Nowitzki Flops in Celebrity Soccer Game (Video)


While the NBA season may have finally come to a close, we can expect to hear about the senseless flopping debate that you can guarantee will be played out and irritating in a matter of minutes. For some reason, a number of fans like to whine about players flopping on the court, despite the fact that it has been a part of the sport since before many of them were even born.

The flopping debate will march on, but don’t expect the players to get too upset.

In a recent celebrity soccer game, Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki took the time to mock flopping with this entertaining attempt to draw a foul on the pitch.

Here is Dirk Nowitzki’s playful flop at the celebrity game:

With a flop like that, Nowitzki may be poised for soccer stardom.

On a serious note, you have to love seeing players goofing off and mocking the things that get them criticized during the season especially in this case. After all, it was an event for charity, so the ultimate goal is to bring a smile to everyone’s face.

Well done, Dirk.
